Custom Order - Golden Flexi Jade Rose

Hello Lovelies!
There have not been many posts about hair jewellery lately, I know. Actually I am on a very tight student budget at the moment so I have not gotten many new pieces. One of my only pieces for a very long time was a golden Flexi in Mega. Flexis in Mega don't come in many styles and especially not in golden colours since they are not very popular. I prefer copper and gold although I do have a celtic knot flexi in pure silver and the tree of life flexi that comes in silver as well. So long story short - you can mix and match different pearls and centrepieces as you want and just write an e-mail to their custom service on www.flexi8.com. They are very helpful and friendly and you just need to pay a little custom fee for your wishes. I love the colour green so I choose the jade hearts with tigereye stones which is another favourite stone of mine with the little golden rose in the center. I think it turned out very pretty and I have been wearing my mega flexis a lot simply because they are pretty and very durable. Sometimes you need to pay custom fees, but only above a certain amount that i did stay under. They ship from the US and I have never waited more than 2 weeks  luckily. 

Do you like the Flexi hairstyles or do you prefer chop sticks? 
I would love to hear about your custom orders as well!


Flechtwerk: Multibraids

Multibraids - Fishtail Braid - Accent 3x3 braid 

Hello Lovelies,
Today's post is about simple or not so simple multi braids. I love to combine different braiding techniques - my favourite at the moment are fishtail braids. I think it it looks always romantic, sweet with a little boho vibe. If you want you can fluff up your fishtail braid to add more volume. In today's hair do I just incorporated one accent braid into two regular three strand braids at the nape of my neck that I then combines to a three strand braid. Sounds fancy but is very easy :o) 

How to:

  • Braid a fishtail braid beginning at your forehead
  • Braid two regular english braids at the nape of your neck
  • Combine all three into one braid

I am excited about the other Flechtwerk-Girl's Ideas, check out Heike, Nessa,  Bobby , Wuscheline and Lenja :) And because I had the nicest sunset yesterday - ducks in a pond for you as well. For more braiding inspiration you can check out my pinterest hair board if you like.

Hairlength in July

Hello Lovelies!

Time for a monthly hair length update :) This time a little different - a front picture for a change. I am beyond classic length now with 109 cm! I know, it's crazy how fast they grew. Lately like always it was very stressful for a while and I did not had much time to fuss about my hair. I just kept to my routine and put my hair into a simple three strand braid and suddenly they became so long. I do think it looks very nice when I wear my hair loose around my face - but I am actually a pretty short person with just 1,63. So my hair length does weight me down a little. In a braid it's fine though. Not sure where to go from here. What do you think leave it or cut it a little bit? I was pretty happy at hip length I have to say. Henna grew out just about arm pit length! Yay! The sun turned my hair redder than it is like always. But I still love my natural hair colour. And to celebrate my reached length I just ordered hair jewellery I wanted forever now. It all started a few years ago on Etsy. I was looking for Rose's Titanic butterfly comb after reading about it on the LHC. Heike was then ordering one from Etsy but never had it shipped, another pretty long hair friend Schmunselhase got hers luckily but until lately I had given up. Thanks to Heike - she just got her comb and so I started to look again for the comb and found it finally :o) I hope it will ship quickly as well. I am so excited <3 .


Care: Review Yves Rocher I love my Planet Radiance Shampoo

Review - Yves Rocher I love my planet Shampoo

Yves Rocher's shampoo  (5Euros/300ml) is ecolabeled, biodegradable and has minimal ingredients for shiny and really clean hair. This shampoo will deep clean your hair and not weight it down. It foams and cleans very well and leaves your hair full of volume. I have been using this shampoo for a month now and use it very diluted. It leaves my scalp happy and non-itchy. It says for all hair types and I can really agree!

AquaSodium Laureth Sulfate,Cocamidopropyl BetaineGlycerinPEG-7 Glyceryl CocoateSodium ChlorideSodium BenzoateCitric AcidParfumHydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium ChlorideSalicylic acid, Citrus (Medica Limonum Juice),Tocopherol

It is really plain if you look at the incis. Washing power comes from sodium laureth sulcate and betaine, it contains glycerine for more manageability and that's about it already. There is no oil of aloe vera in it. It will be a good shampoo for fine hair as well although I was surprised that my hair was not dried out too much as well.

It smells like lemons. I think this is a great shampoo during summer because you really feel refreshed after the shower.

The good price, simple ingredients and lovely fragrance get a 8/10! It might be not enough moisture if used over a long time but until now it has worked very well for me. It works well as a clarifying shampoo - something you need to use to get all that sheabutter out of your hair or your coconut oil hair mask. It has a minimum of care incis and I would use it about once every 2-3 weeks ( I wash my hair on a weekly basis).
 Yves Rocher claims that for every sold shampoo they will plant a tree, Yves Rocher has an own environmental organisation, more infos can be found here. They did plant 35 million trees already if you look at their website ticker. I think it is good that Yves Rocher has a nature bound philosophy!

Did you use any Yves Rocher prodcuts lately? What do you think about their philosophy and incis? I find that they sometimes contradict a little if you look closely at some of their product ranges.
